Duerr’s Marmalades and Conserves Review

Duerr’s Marmalades and Conserves Review: August 2017

Based in marvelous Manchester, there is some real history and knowledge behind the Duerrs brand. All beginning with Fred and Mary Duerr’s homegrown business, since 1881 for 135 years, Duerr’s the oldest family-owned jam maker in England, have been producing preserves using timeless family recipes. The family talents are not just in making perfect preserves, they brought the innovative Orbit™ easy-open lid to market, Europe’s first squeezy jam bottles and impressively invented the periscopes used in World War One.

Sent a stash of delicious, divine and delightful Duerr’s Marmalades and conserves. Still salivating, all the conserves and marmalades were lush. Conserves included the Sunny lemon, Golden orange and totally tangerine. Mouth-watering Marmalades included the classic Seville, Sunny Seville, Golden ginger and half sugar Seville.

The thick cut classic Seville Marmalade, was the perfect paring, generously spread across my home baked muffins. The Chunky Golden Ginger Marmalade, was perfect to use in my ginger, peach panna cotta dessert. The Jar complemented the dish, both in terms of taste and presentation, by housing the most lip-smackingly refreshing ginger, orange and peach cocktail. Finally, the golden ginger and half sugar Seville marmalade along with my homemade linseed bread rolls, made the most fab foodie gift

A fabulous family brand steeped in tradition, now Fred and Mary’s, great great great grandsons, Richard and Mark, continue to expand crafting and creating a range of quality products using both innovative and traditional family recipes. Grab a jar, twist that lid off and see what you can create.

Thank you to the Duerr’s family, my lovely followers and all the fab bloggers out there 😊

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review: May 2017

With 20 years’ experience and over 100 shops based in the United Kingdom EAT. know a thing or two about fab fresh food. Seasonal changes mean that new fresh innovative menus are launched frequently. Food waste is also managed at EAT. where the brand donates as many of their leftover sandwiches and salads as possible to local charities that work with the homeless. They also work closely with the homeless charity Crisis, so this is a winner for me!

For those who don’t know, Bill Collison both driven and inspired by his Dads love for fresh home grown produce, started out in a small space that his dad showed him, which was no bigger than a shed, just off the high street in Lewes in East Sussex.  Rapid Success and growth meant the need to acquire new premises, but tragedy struck in 2000 with the heavy floods wiping Bill’s shop out.  Starting from scratch Bill remained positive and went from almost bust to boom.

Côte Manchester Breakfast Review

Côte Manchester Breakfast Review: April 2017

Bonjour Brilliant Manchester, French phrase book in hand I was ready to experience authentic French cuisine minus the airfare, airport faff and 400-mile journey. The place oozes French rustic charm and character.  The inviting entrance has a French feel with aged signage, topiary trees and vintage seating that gives the outdoors café culture feel.  Anyone could easily mistake themselves for being right in the heart of Paris.
